CERNLIB is a suite of data analysis tools and libraries created for
use in physics experiments, but also with applications to other
fields such as the biological sciences.
This package contains the server daemon for remote PAW clients. PAW
is the Physics Analysis Workstation, a graphical analysis program.
Included in the same binary is zserv, the server daemon for the ZFTP protocol;
zserv is a macro-extensible file transfer program which supports the
transfer of formatted, unformatted and ZEBRA RZ files (CMZ, HBOOK, etc.).
It is similar to a standard FTP daemon, although it listens on a different
port. Both servers operate through inetd.
Since these servers accept passwords in clear text and do not support SSL
or other encryption methods, you should probably only install this package
within a trusted LAN. It should be seen as equivalent to vanilla telnetd
in terms of security (or lack thereof).
